Hey, I'd like to do some wide-angle portraits. I found these photos and really love both the look and FOV. Can you help me guessing the focal length? https://flic.kr/p/URde7u https://flic.kr/p/VZuu21 I'd imagine he used 28mm or 24mm, or even wider? Maybe the 24mm Lux (because of the bokeh)? Has anyone else here taken similar shots?
War Cemetary „Lohrer Wald“ (49°50'21.52"N; 7°49'38.21“E / 32U 415678 5521508) Tucked away in the midst of an untroubled woodland, there is one of the numerous war cemetaries bestowed upon Europe by the savagery of WW II, summoned up by Nazi Germany. This is the final resting place of more than 2.000 bodies gathered from temporary graves at battlefields and POW camps in the vicinity. The serenity of the surroundings is in stark contrast to the circumstances under which those who lie here must have perished. It is almost as if the generation of survivors wanted to hide their sorrow and guilt in the dense patch of forest. The caption of the memorial plaque in the entrance hall translates „You who were sacrificed no longer see the sun and the stars, but you live in the hearts of those who believe“. This is a somewhat ambiguous statement, to be found in a number of German war cemeteries built in the early 1950ies, when coming to terms with the atrocities of the recent past was still a work in in progress, and the private and public sentiment oscillated between denial and shame. The fact that this cemetary contains the remnants of predominantly German soldiers, prisoners of war and civilians is not my point here. As in a previous post (https://www.l-camera-forum.com/topic/257654-black-and-white-image-thread/?p=3490492) I explicitely dissociate myself from any attempts at historic revisionism, relativism or exculpation. The point is, that this graveyard contains lost lives, many of them cut short in their teens. Their heritage to us should be an obligation towards peace and a comittment to civilization.

Mini-Series „Marcel Dupré’s Organ“ I show some photographs taken during a private visit to the former home of French composer and organ virtuoso Marcel Dupré (1886-1971) in Meudon near Paris. Dupré had the concert hall specifically built around the organ, which was originally constructed in 1899 for Alexandre Guilmant by Aristide Cavaillé-Coll. The organ had to be moved a few hundred meters to it’s new home in 1926. It is still private property, to this day, but it is being maintained with the help of a non profit association. [ All pictures were taken handheld in available light. ]

Selling off my Leica Elmarit R 19mm f/2.8, complete with caps hood and 82mm UV filter. Used for many years on both Film (Leica R9) and Digital (Panasonic S1), I'm selling it to replace it with the Leica 16-35mm as i want a zoom for ease when traveling. No scratches or marks on the glass, mechanics are all smooth, clean diaphragm, however as can be seen some of the markings have worn down in some places. Mount is 3 cam version, for digital this doesn't matter but for analogue this means it can be used on all Leica bodies starting from the Leicaflex SL2 till the R9 with full functionality. Lens shipped from Helsinki Finland, about 40 euros insured and tracked to Europe. Payment by SEPA/IBAN bank transfer or Paypal. Sample shot was with this exact lens (i think at f/5.6, and the vignetting was added in post), if you want to see more samples it different apertures please ask.
